PES, Homan's Class, 2015
First grade invited David Strange, Tupelo magician, to do a little magic to kick off our end of the year theme, "Summer is a magical time of year.' Mrs. Kim Homan's class extended this activity to include some hands on math (determining sides and vertices of 3-dimensional shapes), science (chemical reactions cause changes--gases and explosions), and art (geometric painting for the Pancakes and Painting breakfast) in the classroom. Students have brought in magic tricks (illusions) and science experiments to share with the class.

PREPS, 2015
Pontotoc City School District Honored as “A” District Award Winner by PREPS
 
MISSISSIPPI STATE, MS—The Pontotoc City School District has been recognized at the recent statewide conference of the Program of Research and Evaluation of Public Schools (PREPS) for being named an “A” School District under the new Mississippi School Accountability System.   Local schools from the Pontotoc City School District have also been recognized at the recent statewide conference of the Program of Research and Evaluation of Public Schools (PREPS) for being named as a Value Added School.  
 
The “A” District Award is presented to school districts that have scored the highest rating in the Mississippi School Accountability System. This year the Pontotoc City School District was one of nine recipients of this prestigious award.
 
PREPS is a private non-profit consortium of school districts whose purpose is to develop and implement educational products and services that help manage and support districts' efforts to demonstrate improvement in their instructional programs. PREPS is supported by the College of Education at Mississippi State University and is housed in the Center for Educational Partnerships, the service division of the college. Collaboration among member districts enables the districts to benefit from the development of products and services that no single district is capable of developing alone.
